Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Coloured Bondage: Jacolby Satterwhite x Danshoku” is on view at Asakusa in Tokyo through Monday, September 24. The solo exhibition presents the New York–based artist’s new 3-D film Avenue B (2018) alongside a 14th-century picture scroll, Chigono Soshi (on loan from the collection of Daigoji Sanshui in Kyoto), which “describes the relationship between chigo (young trainees) and male monks at the Japanese medieval monastery,” according to a press release. The exhibition will close with a three-day screening, beginning September 22, of work by Satterwhite, Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz, and Hito Steyerl, among others, titled “The Art of Not Being Governed (Quite So Much),” also organized by Asakusa.
